Late homer only blemish as Jake Arrieta ends winless streak
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta dominated his former team Friday, in a 4-1 win over the Orioles.

Arrieta allowed just one run in seven innings of work, on a seventh inning solo home run by Nelson Cruz. That late blemish aside, the Orioles could hardly touch Arrieta, who allowed just four hits and a walk over his seven innings, while striking out five batters on 99 pitches in the win.

Arrieta brought a three-start winless streak to an end Friday, despite having allowed just two runs in his previous two outings. He has a 7-4 record and 2.53 ERA in 124 1/3 innings this season, heading into his start against the Reds Thursday.

Jacob Turner a candidate to start Tuesday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jacob Turner tossed two innings Thursday against the Cubs, allowing one run on three hits, and MLB.com reports his next outing could come as a starter.

Turner is a candidate to start in Edwin Jackson's spot in the rotation Tuesday, after Jackson was placed on the disabled list this week. Turner has not started since early August when the Cubs acquired him, but he told MLB.com he would be ready if called on.

"Definitely," he said. "I was starting at the beginning of the month. I don't think I'd have any problem going five, and depending on how stressful the innings were, getting back up and down wouldn't be a problem."

Turner has made 12 of his 22 appearances this season as a starter, carrying a 5.77 ERA in 82 2/3 innings overall.
